Hi. Does this relate to social security? If so, a surviving spouse or child may receive a special lump-sum death payment of $255 if they meet certain requirements.

If there's no eligible surviving spouse, the lump-sum can be paid to the worker's child (or children) if, during the month the worker died, the child:

If the eligible surviving spouse or child is not currently receiving benefits, they must apply for this payment within two years of the date of death.
